Faith Leaders And Women Of Faith Rally For Judge Roy Moore

"There's been comments about me taking a stand," said Judge Roy Moore at a press conference hosted by a dozen national faith leaders. "I'll quit standing when they lay me in that box and put me in the ground."

CHQ Exclusive: Judge Moore Lawyers Strike Back Against False Reports

We have an exclusive look at the letter Judge Moore's lawyers sent to the Alabama Media Group demanding they retract false and malicious reports. If Judge Moore is fighting the accusations, but Congress is paying millions to hush-up sexual harassment claims, shouldn't those Members be outed and forced to resign?

The Assassination of Roy Moore

We’ve known Roy Moore for years and seen him in public and private more times than we can count, and have never seen anything but character and integrity. Roy Moore is persevering in his campaign, and we are likewise persevering in our support for him and we urge our friends in Alabama to do likewise.

The Despicable Mitch McConnell

The game here isn’t electing Republicans – it is “crushing” conservatives as Mitch McConnell swore to do before the 2014 election. We predict that McConnell will, as he did in Mississippi in 2014, pull out all the stops to kill Roy Moore’s campaign, even if it means electing Far-Left Democrat Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate and jeopardizing the Republican majority.

Voters Sent The Republicans A Wake-Up Message

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Maybe the most powerful line in American politics is “send them a message” and on Tuesday the voters sent Republicans a series of unmistakable messages.

Congress Suffers From Senility Of Purpose And Principles

The 115th Congress is among the oldest in history; 18 of the 33 Senators running for reelection in 2018 will be 65 or older, but we think Congress is failing not because it suffers ill effects from aging, but because it suffers from senility of purpose and principles.

Trump Warns McCain: 'I Fight Back -- And It Won't Be Pretty'

Michael Van Der Galien, PJ Media

McCain can be darn sure that Trump isn't goofing around. If the RINO from Arizona wants to take Trump on, he'd better expect the president to fight back. Oh, and if I were McCain, I'd tread very carefully right now. After all, if Trump has proved one thing these last two years, it's that he is uniquely able to take on and defeat the Republican establishment of which McCain is a proud and prominent member.

Trump Tax Plan: Will Ryan And McConnell Pass It?

The President's tax plan shouldn't be controversial with Capitol Hill's Republican majority, however, that's what we thought about the Obamacare repeal and McConnell and Ryan couldn't get that passed.

Trump Is Reinventing What It Means to Be a Politician

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump has completely reinvented the template of what it means to be a politician and it's no surprise that so may other politicians (not just John McCain) are publicly or privately appalled.  He has unmasked them.  They're worried and they should be because American politics will never be the same.

Did Senator Lindsey Graham Finally Get One Right?

If Senator Graham can cajole his buddy John McCain into voting for his bill it just might allow Republicans to, at least part way, make good on their eight-year pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare.

One Down 40 – 50 To Go

Rep. Charles Dent a leader of the RINO Tuesday Group is retiring. Our take on the Tuesday Group is 1 down, 40 – 50 to go, they are each guilty until proven innocent by their votes, so primary them all.

Afghanistan Is President Trump’s War Now: Fighting Without Purpose Or End

The president presented escalation as a means to redeem the lives of those who have already died. Economists call this the fallacy of sunk costs. Those who have died cannot be resurrected. The best way to honor the dead is to send no more to die needlessly.

Counterpoint: Why Should North Korea Believe the United States?

No one knows what President Trump believes about the Koreas. He has made many contradictory comments while Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham have been talking up the likelihood of war.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say McConnell Must Step Down

More than 97% of self-identified conservatives said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”

Jeff Flake Is Filling In for John McCain as a Liberal Media Darling

Stephen Kruiser, PJ Media

Flake has been a little too cozy with McCain since he got to Washington. What's galling to those who grew up in Barry Goldwater's Arizona is Flake's none-too-subtle implication that he is somehow picking up Goldwater's mantle of conservatism. He's got an ego that's really out of sync with his accomplishments. And he couldn't even think of an original title for his book.

Jeff Flake: A Book By A Fake Conservative With No Conscience

We urge CHQ readers to skip Flake’s screed against the voters he has failed as a member of Congress and read the original Goldwater – Bozell version of Conscience of a Conservative instead.

John McCain's Obamacare vote was indefensible

John Fund, National Review

Far from being a modern-day “profile in courage,” McCain’s vote against advancing Obamacare reform represents a complete reversal of the position he won his Senate election with last year. In what may prove to be one of the most important votes he has cast in his 35 years in Congress, he chose to operate like the standard-issue politicians he likes to rail against.

Mr. President, End The Congressional Obamacare Scam

It is time to make Congress live like the rest of us, and end their illegal “small business” Obamacare scam and their gold-plated subsidies and see how fast they run to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a free market system.

McCain's Revenge

Ross Kaminsky, The American Spectator

Following his back-stabbing vote, John McCain, as sympathetic a character as his health issues might make him this week, deserves to feel the sting of a Republican senator. If McCain never returns to the Senate, it is fitting that the last vote he casts will be one which, unfortunately for the nation, adds some credence to the words “He’s no hero.”
